Taking Control and being content

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

I mentioned in my last blog how hard things have been since my uncle's passing at the beginning of this year and how difficult it's been to see any importance in anything, including my health, my increasingly dangerous lifestyle. Another reason is work, it takes over my days and weeks and months. I honestly don't remember the month of March, the month before I launched the website I work on for the airline. But things are looking up.

My career, yes, career, is going great, I am making a name for myself and taking charge and doing all those great things I never thought I'd be able to do after only 10 months since I started working for the airline. I heard that the SVP of my department was talking about how good I was and that I am a keeper. My VP (more like manager, since my actual manager doesn't really do much with my work) always tells me how much of a good job I am doing.

Yesterday I went over to a colleague just to say hi and kindly remind him of the work he has to send across to me so that I can finally incorporate it in my website (the travel agent website of the airline, which I run since I started working for the airline). All I did was smile and say hey, and he said Hiiii, how are you? and I said that I was well. He said: Thank you for the lovely reminder and just showing me your pretty face instead of chasing me, I appreciate it. (This guy is GORGEOUS btw, and married so I am not interested obviously)

Not only was I ecstatic at the pretty face comment, but I was happy because I questioned the way I do business, but that comment proves exactly that my way of dealing with my colleagues is the right way, the right way for me.

All of that just shows me that I've taken control and managed to find my place at work. I have absolutely no excuse to not be healthy, to not exercise, to not do this. That motivation boost I needed, I just got it.

The plan for the month of May, is to exercise daily for an intensive 15 minutes workout. Just to build consistency and stamina as well. I will weigh in once a week, on Saturday. I will track my food nonchallantly just to stay on track with healthy eating. I can do this. I just need to keep track of it all and work hard, and get to that goal I so desperately want.

Thank you to everyone who cares about me and wishes me well and check on me. Even though I don't come on SP much lately, you are always on my mind and your comments give me an awesome boost. I love it. I miss SP.
